It's honestly not that great. Get a TRUE or Noctua for a lot less money.

well, if it's only priced the same as the v8, why not?

its exactly double the price of a V8 which i wouldnt buy either.

V8 = $70

V10 = $140

Both from newegg. Ignore them both and get a TRUE.

It's decent for socket 775 chips, but it would completely fail at cooling an i7 chip.

They do make a i7 bracket, that's the reason why they came out at the same time as the i7 chips.

Honestly, the V10 is too much money, for what a TRUE can do, Yes you can cool RAM too, But I can buy a $15 Corsair Dominiator RAM cooler, and still be cheaper than $140

That thing would be bigger than an ATX board in length and width. Will cool everything, every capacitor, every transistor, everything!

You're right, I thought you were talking about the freezer 7 pro

have you guys seen how much a TRUE costs with a 1366 bracket... add 2 fans... now the price comparison between a v10 and a TRUE isnt so bad... i run cooler than a TRUE and i'm g2g out of the box, a TRUE you have to lap, use washer mod, add 2 fans, not to mention it's ugly as hell... I'll chose my V10 any day of the week!

They should've made it without the TEC, it doesn't seem like the TEC helped much. It probably could be less than $100 without the TEC.
